Re: RC3 Bug: Compile to Word Creates Unreadable Content - Cannot Open

I can confirm the problem on compile but was able to open the file with only the first item selected on the menu. I then did a compile into .rtf with no problem. Not the best solution but usable in word. I do remember that here had been problems with compile into .docx. I am using Office 365 subscri...

Re: Release candidates 1 & 2 ?

I am running the Scrivener Windows betas on my Ubuntu Linux machine. I just uninstalled release candidate 1 (32-bit) and then installed release candidate 2 - but it still says release candidate 1, expiring April 14. What have I done wrong? Or am I somehow confused? And if you go to help and about w...

Re: Grateful for the good news

I will be happy with each release even after its release because why? There will be patches, updates and other whatnot for even after a beta becomes, silver than gold there will always be something needing to be done until told to fade into the sunset.

Re: How to access Linguistic Focus?

I would use it to to cut back on the over abundance and reliability of over used words. It limits ones use as with not allowing the growth of thinking of newer or better ways of conveying what's in ones mind's eye because I would be heavily dependent on using just one method and not have any growth ...

Re: [RC2] 'Edit Format' window in Compile screen is buggy

Can you be a bit more specific on the screen size, resolution and if DPI is enabled as well. There have been known problems with this.

Re: RC2 (and about what is a release candidate)

There will come a day when software will come out perfect with no flaws and exactly what was requested as developers take out the one problem that hampers its all---humans and their in-perfections.

Re: Update within Beta

As of late Evening (EST) the updater showed ver 2.9.9.2. Downloaded and installed no problems. Opened and reported expiration date of 14 Apr 2020. Unlike jje I only show 2 versions in my app list. Mine still shows a 2.9.0.23 (which I have no intention of modifying) while the other is 19160 (I have p...

Re: Will the next Beta Update come in time?

It's very unlikely they'd change their approach this late in the beta, and such an approach as the one listed above leaves the product more open to software piracy. Also you do 'not' need to uninstall and then download and reinstall. I've been using the beta's for a long time and decided to test ou...

Re: Will the next Beta Update come in time?

I totally understand not wanting to chase bugs in older beta versions that have been solved in newer versions but one way to solve that problem is to require any bug submission to be in the current beta version which means whoever wants to submit the bug report has to be sure they are using the cur...

Re: Selecting font with mouse in toolbar

I'm using 44 and mouse and not having any problem with it. I right click move over to font and click on it bringing up the menu. Hovering the cursor within the box (not clicking) I'm able to use the scroll with no problem.

Re: Bug - Single quote mark facing wrong way after double quote mark

Ok, I could see this not being a Scrivener-specific problem. I can work around it. I've been a programmer and a quality engineer before, so I posted it because I figured they'd want to know about it. Thanks guys! No, I see it as a bug but not one program specific to just Scrivener. It wouldn't show...

Re: Bug - Single quote mark facing wrong way after double quote mark

One way I found that seems to fix the problem is to put the single ' up first and then put the " before it. I've tested it a few times and it seems to work.

The problem seems to me that it stems from the idea that the single quote is being taken as part of the double quote.
